  • Automorphism groups of countable algebraically closed graphs and endomorphisms of the random graph 

    Dolinka, Igor; Gray, Robert Duncan; McPhee, Jillian Dawn; Mitchell, James David; Quick, Martyn (2016-05) - Journal article
    We establish links between countable algebraically closed graphs and the endomorphisms of the countable universal graph R. As a consequence we show that, for any countable graph Γ, there are uncountably many maximal subgroups ...
  • Autonomic management in a distributed storage system 

    Tauber, Markus (University of St Andrews, 2010-06-23) - Thesis
    This thesis investigates the application of autonomic management to a distributed storage system. Effects on performance and resource consumption were measured in experiments, which were carried out in a local area ...

  • Autonomous fault detection in self-healing systems using Restricted Boltzmann Machines 

    Schneider, Christopher; Barker, Adam David; Dobson, Simon Andrew (2014-09-24) - Conference item
    Autonomously detecting and recovering from faults is one approach for reducing the operational complexity and costs associated with managing computing environments. We present a novel methodology for autonomously generating ...
  • Autonomy and purity in Kant's moral theory 

    Benson, Carolyn Jane (University of St Andrews, 2010-06-25) - Thesis
    Kant believed that the moral law is a law that the rational will legislates. This thesis examines this claim and its broader implications for Kant’s moral theory. Many are drawn to Kantian ethics because of its emphasis ...
  • Available actors, appropriate action : theodramatic formation and performance

    Situated within the theatrical turn in Christian theology, this project explores theatre as a model for theological ethics, looking particularly at the dynamic interplay between formation as disponibility (availability) ...
  • Aversiveness of sound in marine mammals : psycho-physiological basis, behavioural correlates and potential applications 

    Götz, Thomas (University of St Andrews, 2008) - Thesis
    Understanding what psycho-physiological and behavioural factors influence aversiveness of sound in marine mammals is important for conservation and practical applications. The aim of this study was to determine predictors ...
  • Aviation and social exclusion 

    Sustainable Development Commission (Sustainable Development Commission, 2006-01) - Report
    The impact of forecast growth in aviation on UK passengers socio-economic groups is analysed.
  • Aviation and sustainable development 

    Sustainable Development Commission (Sustainable Development Commission, 2001-04-01) - Report
    This paper seeks to contribute some views on the big policy questions in the government's consultation exercise on the future of air transport, of which the biggest seems to us to be whether the general presumption in ...
  • Aviation and the environment : using economic instruments [SDC report] 

    Sustainable Development Commission (Sustainable Development Commission, 2003-07-03) - Report

    1. As part of global efforts to reduce dependence on carbon-based energy sources there has been a rapid increase in the installation of renewable energy devices. The installation and operation of these devices can result ...
  • The awareness of novelty for strangely familiar words : a laboratory analogue of the déjà vu experience 

    Urquhart, Josephine; O'Connor, Akira Robert (2014-11-11) - Journal article
    Déjà vu is a nebulous memory experience defined by a clash between evaluations of familiarity and novelty for the same stimulus. We sought to generate it in the laboratory by pairing a DRM recognition task, which generates ...
  • An axiomatic functionalist analysis of the phonology of Yulu 

    Gabjanda, James Dahab (1976) - Thesis
    This thesis is concerned with the description of Yulu, a language which has not previously been subjected to modern linguistic analysis. Thus this thesis has two important aspects. Firstly, however remote a Language, ...
  • Axonal localization of integrins in the CNS is neuronal type and age dependent
